In the year 2463, the lower classes of New Charleston use bioluminescent tattoos for communication. Back-alley gen-modders sometimes make mistakes and the tattoos misfire and sputter, creating a bioluminescent lisp. That's what happened to Snapper. Alli is a brilliant geneticist who moves to new Charleston with vague notions of helping the poor and underprivileged. her prominent family does not approve of this or other recent decisions.
